Default New Me, One Pound at a Time

Hi Everyone,

Today I am starting my journey to a new Me. I am going to the gym for the first time in 3 months right after I finish this post. I am 19 years old and a Sophomore in college. I have a BMI of 34.0. I also come from a large family where sweets and unhealthy food surround me. I lovelovelove to cook and bake. OH and I work at an Italian Bakery...


This means I have a lot of work to do in the next coming months. I want to be able to go out with my friends and not worry about being the only fat one. I want to go to the beach and not worry about people staring at my jiggly thighs and stomach. I want to feel sexy when I am around my boyfriend of 4 years. I want to feel beautiful all the time.

I really am going to do this. I really am going to do this. I really AM going to do this. I REALLY AM GOING TO DO THIS.

If anyone has any tips or tricks to help make this easier while I am at college, I commute, but fast food restaurants are always on my ride there, and sometimes they just smell soooooo good. What would be good lunch options that would be fine in a lunch box without a refrigerator? What would help me not eat the tempting sweets at the bakery or at home?

I really appreciate any and all support that come from you because I know that if I have someone that believes in me, I will be able to do this.

Katelyn, welcome!

Congrat to you for making the commitment to get rid of the excess weight--it sounds like you've got a few hurdles in your way, but if you're determined I know you can clear them all with ease.

Make a plan and work it and don't give up for anything.

Personally, and this is just me, I'd have to take a "zero tolerance" stance on bakery items--hopefully you can handle having "only one" but I don't think I could.

Anyway, have a read through the subforums--there is lots of good advice and people who care and don't hesitate to ask if you have specific questions.

47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)

June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
